Aspose.BarCode for Java 17.11 is available for download now. The major development in this release is the support to generate databar coded barcode with segments per row. Enhanced functionality to read barcode from PDF has also been incorporated in this release.
Generating Segments Per Row For Databar Barcode
Aspose.BarCode for Java now supports the functionality to generate segments per row databar encoded barcode. This functionality allows the developers to adjust the amount of information per (each) row in the barcode. A property BarCodeBuilder.setColumns has been introduced to define the said setting. How a developer can set segments per row for a databar is demonstrated in the code snippet given below. The code snippet contains comments that makes it self explanatory.
//Instantiate BarCodeBuilder object com.aspose.barcode.BarCodeBuilder builder = new com.aspose.barcode.BarCodeBuilder(); //Set the Code text for the barcode builder.setCodeText("(01)98898765432106(3202)012345(15)991231"); //Set the symbology type to Code128 builder.setEncodeType(com.aspose.barcode.EncodeTypes.DATABAR_EXPANDED_STACKED); //Set the cloumn property to define segments per row builder.setColumns(6); //Save the image builder.save("6segmets.png");
